「Refrain」の類語とその違い

Q: refrain from と restrain from はどう違いますか?
A: I believe this usage of restrain is incorrect. The format is usually "restrain (person/object)"

For example: "I restrained my dog from biting the toy"

"I restrained myself from eating too much."

"I restrained my friend from punching the drunkard."

Your usage of refrain is correct.

"I refrained from taking drugs."

"Irene refrained from yelling at her boss."

The usage is different. Restrain is applied to objects.

Refrain is not. It is applied only to the person that does the refraining.

Otherwise, both mean essentially the same thing. Refrain means to prevent (yourself) from doing something.

Restrain means to prevent (someone/something) from doing something.

The meaning is similar but the grammar rules are different.
